Subject: Look up request - Thomas FUTTY Staithes 1886
Date: Thu, 31 Mar 2005 16:31:08 +0100


Hi everyone

Edmund Futty son of Francis,born Withernsea 1850 and shown as Edmund age 1
and 10 on the 1851& 1861 Censuses respectively was on the 1871 in
Staithes,Hinderwell Nr Whitby as Edward,a miner. He married Dinah Dawson on
18th August 1874 and daughter Sarah Ann was born in 1876.Another
daughter,Dinah was born and subsquently died in 1878.

According to the 1891census for Staithes Dinah is 37, married,living with
son Thomas age 5,with a note saying wife of Edward Footy who left Staithes
at the same age.Dinah does not refer to herself as a widow until the 1901
census.

I have a death certificate for Edward who died on 8th January 1881,in the
Seamans Hospital in Greenwich.
Thomas' birth was registered in the Whitby area in the June qtr of 1886. I
would be grateful if SKS with access to the registers for Staithes would
check for a baptism of this youngster to see if there is any more
information.
Many thanks

Lynn in the rather overcast West Midlands
